OL's Favorites: Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Products
After that delicious organic meal you served, you probably head to your kitchen to start washing your dirty dishes. Now before you reach for that dish soap, read whats on the back of its label. That bacteria killing dish soap actually has harmful chemicals and synthetic fragrances, which can be left in residue on your plates and end up in your food. Dish washing detergents are the #1 cause of household poisoning. Dish washing liquids are even labeled "harmful if swallowed." Not only that but also consider the bleach you are using on your bathrooms, or the counter tops. If you look at that label you will probably find all kinds of harmful chemicals like Chlorine, alkyl phenoxy ethanols (APEs), dichloromethane (DCM), diethanolamine (DEA), dioxane, phosphates, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate and ammonia. These chemicals have been proven to be cancerous, poisonous, harmful to children, contribute to ashma and cause skin irritation. Who wants all of that!
Solution! Mrs Meyers Clean Day! Their liquid product line is all natural, biodegradable and does not contain ammonia, chlorine or phosphates. Their fantastic fragrances are all made from essential oils, with creative scents like, basil, lavender, geranium, and lemon verbena. The geranium one is my favorite and always makes doing the dishes just a little bit sunnier. They are also committed to being cruelty free as they do not test on animals and their containers are made from recyclable materials. If that wasn't enough they are available at prices comparable to their chemical filled counterparts. Enjoy!
